But what if we told you that you don’t even need to step outside of your own home to lose weight and achieve your dream body? It’s actually quite possible and very realistic. There’s no need for 4 mile runs in the searing heat, or costly gym subscriptions; all you need is a few simple exercise moves that you can perform as long as you have a little space in your home. We have compile six of such moves in this article, for you, and you can read all about them below:

1. Zumba


Zumba is a dance move that is very effective for weight loss and has become very popular in modern times. Actually this weight loss technique is not technically a dance move per se, but more of a hybrid dance-exercise move, designed to be performed to high tempo music. The fast tempo of Zumba and it’s ability to make you use multiple body parts at once, make it an ideal option for weight loss. The best part is, you don’t even get to feel the pain as you’ll be too busy having a great time. All you have to do is get yourself a Zumba DVD at home, and you’re good to go.

2. Skipping rope


Lots of people think that skipping rope is easy and is a fun game for children and therefore do not take it as a serious exercise. Don’t make this mistake. Skipping ropes might not be the most intense exercise you’ll ever do, but it’s intense enough to give you that burn in your calves and have you out of breath within minutes. The best thing about skipping ropes is that its so much fun and can be done by anyone, almost anywhere.

3. Squats


Squats are undoubtedly the big daddy of body weight exercises, achieving a muscle stimulation that significantly outstrips most other exercise moves you could think of. This is because most squats target the quads, glutes and hamstrings which are three of the largest muscles in the human body. Apart from the fact that you could be working so many muscles at the same time, you will also achieve a higher release of human growth hormone which would lead to increased muscle growth.

There are a variety of squat moves but most could be performed form the comfort of your own bedroom.

4. Shadow boxing

If you’re a fan of boxing, this one is for you.

5. Push-ups

No list of exercises to try at home would feel complete with the omission of good old trusty push-ups. Push-us are used by millions of people all over the world, including professional athletes, elite military and police units and the average joe simply trying to improve their look. Like squats, push-ups are a compound exercise and will work multiple muscle groups including the abs, triggering the secretion of high amounts of human growth hormone.

6. Tabata training


Tabata training is not exactly an exercise of its own but is more of an exercise enhancement technique. Using this method, you perform any physical activity at maximal intensity for a 20 second period followed by a 10 second break over a 4 minute period.
